There isn't really much you can do :(

You could try and take it back and claim under warranty but Apple will know it's been damaged by water.

I'm not sure whether there's a water indicator like on the iPhone. If you look down the headphone jack (the actual hole- you may need a torch), and it's got a pink spot at the bottom then your toast. There are ways to cheekily get round this, you could put some bleach on something small enough and bleach it white again and try and take it back.

Somewhere, in his own way, Steve Jobs anticipates a tiny sliver of additional revenue.

O.K. people I've hear this a thousand times a day all over the network and I have a simple solution to this constant problem.

Keep your ipod away from water!

I'm pretty sure most people keep there phone's gadgets away from water. But on occasions accidents do happen. At least the OP got a new one.

Glad to hear it :eek:k:eek:k
